Best Heavy Duty Wheelchairs

If you are looking for a durable and inexpensive wheelchair, but don't mind a heavier weight, then you might want to consider looking at 'Heavy Duty Wheelchairs'. 

Considerations when Buying Heavy Duty Wheelchair

If you are wondering which Heavy Duty wheelchair is best for you it really depends on a number of factors such as:

  • Weight Capacity: Ideally you want a lightweight wheelchair that can withstand your weight +20% buffer. For instance, if you weigh 100kg, then it would be best to get a wheelchair that can withstand 120kg of weight.
  • Seat Width: Ensuring that you are stable and comfortable while sitting down is vital especially if you are going to spend a lot of time sitting on this wheelchair. It is recommended to measure from the widest part of your buttocks, hips or thighs.
  • Riding Surfaces: Where will you be using your wheelchair? If you plan to use it outdoors and on rougher surfaces then you may want larger and more durable wheels.
  • Portability: Does the wheelchair have Half-Folding Backrest, which allows you to fold it into a compact form for storage in the boot?
  • Safety Features: Do you require a wheelchair that includes a seat belt and heel straps for extra safety? What about attendant handbrakes?
